Valerie Haney, who is a former Scientologist, claimed that girls were asked to audition to become Tom Cruise’s girlfriends in the past.


The actor is perhaps the most famous member of the highly controversial church. Recent reports revealed that the church had women audition to become his girlfriend.

During an interview with “The Underground Bunker,” Haney talked with journalist Tony Ortega all about the supposedly grim details of Scientology.

The former Scientologist revealed that Cruise has a strong relationship with the church’s leader, David Miscavige. She said, “They worshipped each other.”

In addition, Haney revealed that Miscavige’s wife named Shelly allegedly instructed her to find Cruise’s next girlfriend in 2004 following his divorce with Nicole Kidman in 2001. By 2006, Cruise tied the knot with Katie Holmes, but they eventually divorced in 2012.


Speaking about Shelly’s reaction towards the “program,” Haney said, “She thought it was ridiculous. She was just doing what Dave asked her to do. But it absolutely happened.”

When Cruise ended his marriage with Holmes in 2012, there were speculations of another set of women auditioning to become the actor’s girlfriend. Vanity Fair reported then that Nazanin Boniadi was Cruise’s chosen girlfriend before he dated Holmes.


In June 2018, another former Scientologist named Brendan Tighe revealed that Scarlett Johansson had auditioned. Although, the actress was adamant in denying the claim.

She told Vanity Fair, "The very idea of any person auditioning to be in a relationship is so demeaning. I refuse for anyone to spread the idea that I lack the integrity to choose my own relationships. Only a man, a.k.a. Brendan Tighe would come up with a crazy story like that."


For 22 years, Haney became a member of the elite circle of the church known as Sea Org. She was also interviewed on the premiere episode of “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” for its third season.

Following the controversial interview, the church released a statement via video denying Haney’s allegations.

"The Church of Scientology stated that Valerie Haney is outright lying and making up stories, as part of her employment for Leah Remini," said the statement obtained by the Hollywood Reporter.

Meanwhile, Kidman recently opened up about her two adopted children. She rarely talks about them, especially with their choice of becoming Scientologists. Finally, Kidman decided to speak up about it.

In addition, she also revealed how being married to Cruise saved her from the dangers of sexual harassment in Hollywood.
